    WOW ...Outlook Express users can now join the fight against spam and enjoy same relief as more than 600,000 SpamFighters
    SAN FRANCISCO - Oct. 9, 2003 - Delivering on demand from tens of thousands of consumers, CloudmarkTM, Inc., today announced the availability of the Outlook Express® version of SpamNetTM, the easy-to-use email add-in that protects you from spam and enables you to fight back! Outlook Express users now join the more than 600,000 users that make up the first and largest SpamFighting community in the world to take advantage of the best performing spam protection available today. SpamNet is successful because it is the first technology to connect a community of people in real-time, so that the second a spam attack occurs, pressing the Block button for a particular spam message instantly stops that spam for everyone in the community. This unique, real-time response to spam is the reason SpamNet delivers the highest accuracy and offers exceptional simplicity - just install it and your spam is automatically eliminated. Download a free beta copy of SpamNet for Outlook Express at:

    http://www.cloudmark.com/spamnet.
    "I use SpamNet for Outlook in my home office and it's stopping 98 percent of spam," said James Shaw of Roswell, Ga., a satisfied SpamNet user and small business owner. "I've been asking Cloudmark to do an Outlook Express version so my wife and I can set it up on our second computer as well. We're both anxious to experience the same relief from spam on our home computer that I've enjoyed in my office for over a year."

    Outlook Express users will receive benefits, beyond free spam relief, when they sign up for SpamNet during the free beta period, which starts today. Beta users will receive a 50 percent purchasing discount when the final product is released. They will also earn free months of subscription to SpamNet just for referring friends, family or colleagues via Cloudmark's referral program which will be rolled out during the beta process. And don't forget that SpamNet's effectiveness increases every time a new SpamFighter joins the community, so making SpamNet available to millions of Outlook Express users benefits the more than 600,000 existing SpamNet users and beyond. In addition, SpamNet installs in just minutes, is extremely user friendly, and is simple to use because it doesn't require constant tweaking, rule configuration or whitelist and blacklist updating. SpamNet also automatically protects you from virus outbreaks; the solution was one of the only antispam products to shield 100 percent of its users just minutes after the Sobig virus that recently harmed millions hit.

    Chris,

    I use MailScanner on a server level.
    It's fully configurable, but works ok with default settings.
    And the price is the best you can get: Free!

    From their site:
    <BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><font size="-1">quote:</font><HR>
    MailScanner is already a highly-respected open source e-mail security system, with more users than AOL and Hotmail combined, and this new release increases its stability and performance. It processes 500 million e-mail messages every day, removing 2 million viruses and identifying 75 million spam messages. MailScanner is used at 20,000 sites around the world protecting top government departments, commercial corporations and educational institutions. It is becoming a standard feature of many ISP's as virus protection and spam filtering are now essential requirements for most users.

    MailScanner scans all e-mail for viruses, spam and attacks against security vulnerabilities. It is not tied to any particular virus scanner, but can be used with any combination of 14 different virus scanners, allowing sites to choose the "best of breed" virus scanner. Being open source, site administrators can audit and verify the integrity of the system. Its role is a major part in the security of a network, and so it must act as a trusted service. The only way to achieve the required level of trust is to be open source, an approach the commercial suppliers are not willing to take. MailScanner has been developed in a world-leading Electronics and Computer Science Department at the University of Southampton, and is distributed for *FREE* under the GNU Public Licence.

    Scans e-mail for viruses using any combination of up to 14 different virus scanners
    Automatically updates all installed virus scanners every hour, by default
    Identifies over 95% of spam using several techniques, including highly advanced heuristics
    Spam can be tagged, rejected, discarded, archived or forwarded to other addresses for inspection by administrators
    Pornographic spam can be stripped of all graphical content, protecting users from obscene content
    Scans e-mail for attacks against known and unknown security vulnerabilities in popular e-mail applications, automatically correcting messages "on the fly" whenever possible and quarantining dangerous sections of other messages
    Highly scalable: 1 PC can process over 1.5 million e-mail messages per day
    Robust: Protects itself against "Denial of Service" attacks and operating system resource leaks
    Highly configurable, providing ISP's and ASP's with the possibility of using thousands of different rules and configurations for any combination of users or domains
    Easy to set up as all configuration options are supplied with "sensible" defaults

    Exerpt from Internetnews showing the affiliate spammer is soon to be flipping burgers at Mickie D's.


    "The company's MailFrontier Matador 3.5 uses proprietary analytics software to automatically detect and categorize fraudulent e-mails for Outlook and Outlook Express users. It also alerts its customers when new types of fraud appear and has a tool within the application that lets users easily report any scam-mail (also known as Phishing) that gets through.

    Phishing, the practice of scamsters setting up bogus Web sites that look like those of legit retailers in an attempt to trick unwary consumers into giving up their credit card numbers, is out of control.

    According to VeriSign's (Quote, Chart) Internet Security Intelligence Briefing, released last week, the growth of online fraud is outpacing Internet use, with security events per managed device increased by nearly 99 percent between May and August of 2003. Data from the digital commerce and communication services provider 's fraud prevention systems showed that 6.2 percent of e-commerce transactions in the U.S. were potential fraud attempts.

    Phishers typically spam out e-mails with spoofed addresses that seem to come from respected merchants. Online auctioneer eBay, it's person-to-person payments subsidiary PayPal, electronic retailer Best Buy, and Microsoft are among the most common commercial victims. The e-mail subject headers warn the recipient of a problem with their account or, in the case of Microsoft, the need to install still another patch. In the e-mail is either a form to fill out with personal information, or a link to the crooks' phony site.

    MailFrontier executives say the choice to update its product line was simple considering such identity theft costs consumers an average of $1,400 per fraud as well as up to $16,000 in lost earnings, according to a September 2003 report by the non-profit Identity Theft Resource Center in San Diego, Calif.

    "Our new detection algorithms will take [fraudulent] e-mails and drop them in a new fraud folder as opposed to the junk folder," Gleb Budman, director of product management for the Palo Alto, Calif.-based company, told internetnews.com. First, the technology looks at what the company calls the "Seven Deadly Sins," such things as hex- or binary-encoded parts of the URL or high-numbered ports on the URL.

    Built on top of MailFrontier's original spam filtering product, Matador, the application also considers whether links within the e-mail go to good sites. If all the links within a message point to bad sites, the message is probably spam, Budman said. "A strong indicator of fraud is if some links point to good sites, and some point to bad." MailFrontier maintains its own database of junk sites, and also announced a strategic partnership with Cyveillance, a company that monitors Internet activity such as identity theft, counterfeit product distribution and brand abuse for corporate clients. MailFrontier and Cyveillance will exchange information about online fraud.

    Todd Bransford, vice president of product marketing for Arlington, Va.-based Cyveillance, told internetnews.com that while MailFrontier's core competency is keeping spam from getting inside the corporation's firewall or into consumers' e-mail boxes, Cyveillance has a complementary competency in monitoring the Internet itself.

    "We provide MailFrontier with detailed information on all Web sites on the planet," Bransford said. "They can use that to determine whether a piece of e-mail that purports to be from a specific domain is legitimate."

    He said Cyveillance information will help Matador be smarter. For example, Cyveillance could tell Matador that the domain from which a particular e-mail originated is a gambling site, which would be suspicious.

    MailFrontier announced a public education campaign to alert Internet users about phishing and other online frauds. The company has joined the Coalition on Online Identity Theft, a recently launched industry consortium that includes Microsoft, eBay and RSA Security. It also will post information its Web site.

    "There is educational information on the portal and a list of resources," said MailFrontier CEO Pavni Diwanji. MailFrontier will operate the site as a community service and make it open to all."
